Glad to have this restaurant in the neighborhood. It serves the needs of families as well as singles with it's reasonably priced meals and appetizers. We enjoyed the paella - one was enough for the two of us, along side a couple appetizers. If you enjoy wine with your meal come on Wednesday evenings when there is no corkage fee and when purchased wine is 20% off! There is also a fried chicken special on Tuesdays.

I've been to this tapas-style restaurant twice in the last month. Once for dinner and once for lunch. It was excellent both times. The menu was interesting and fresh and the food was excellent- from Spanish Octopus to an Arugula salad. Our servers both times were highly attentive even though they were plenty busy, eyes always sweeping their tables to spot a drink that needed refilling, etc. This is a neighborhood kind of place on Lakeshore at the foot of Trestle Glen - but with a fairly cosmopolitan (yet not pretentious) feel to it. I would highly recommend it as a new place to try in Oakland. And then to come back again and again.

Enjoyed a great brunch at a sidewalk table. Super arugula salad as well as chicken & churros. Friendly service.

WOW! Cool little place with an ex-Top Chef in the kitchen and some great cocktails made by very talented bartenders. I had the paella to share with 2 friends (with prawns and chorizo) and it could've been larger for the price, but boy, was it "delicioso"! We also shared two small plates to start with, one was jamon serrano with figs and some other stuff, and the other plate was too salty for me but my friends devoured it - it was Bacalao with tomatoes and onions. The only negative thing, imo, is that it is very loud on a crowded night. Excellent service at this place, too, which is always a good thing.

Enjoyed several tapas with a sherry flight. Highlight was the serrano/melon plate. Superfresh sweet melon slices with high grade ham. Highlight #2 was the special rockfish ceviche. Fresh local fish with just the right lime, heat and tortilla chips. Had a stone fruit salad, flat bread and olives also, but not really special. Cool vibe in a hip Oakland neighborhood. Make reservations! Allow time to park, we parked near Trader Joes. Loud as others have said. Saw several groups with paella. We'll be back for the paella next time.
